White Stork & Wilding

The Wilding collection celebrates the rewilding movement in Britain. Six stunning pen and ink drawings by British artist, David Urmston, herald the return of six species: the beaver, boar, wolf, lynx, white stork and auroch.

While not a keystone species, the white stork is the perfect symbol for rewilding as an image of hope and rebirth. There is significant evidence to show that White Storks were once a breeding bird of Britain, with an archaeological record stretching back 360,000 years.

White Storks are particularly associated with the county of Sussex. The Saxon name for the village of Storrington, near Worthing, was originally “Estorchestone”, meaning “the village of the storks”.

White Storks like living in close proximity to people, building their large shaggy nests on roofs and church towers. In Europe they are so beloved, ubiquitously considered a sign of good luck, that people erect cartwheels on their roofs to attract them. Their nests provide opportunities for colonies of other birds such as tree- and house-sparrows.
